Editorial Loving: Nicole Kidman For Vogue Germany

Vogue-Nicole-Kidman-1I know that everyone has already moved on to the September issues but I have only just picked up the August cover of Vogue Germany, which was an homage to Nicole Kidman. The Australian actress didn’t just get two gorgeous covers, but also three incredible editorials inside that really shows off her model potential and various personalities.

We have the whimsical editorial shot by Camilla Akrans that shows Nicole wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry Prorsum, Louis Vuitton and Valentino in a gorgeous outdoor setting. I just love how Camilla has shot this editorial, the soft lighting and the fuzziness to the images makes it romantic and magical and Nicole looks absolutely gorgeous styled by Nicole Knels and I love the loose curls in her hair.

 

Then we have the high-fashion editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier, this is a powerful spread that unleashes Nicole’s inner femme fatale and I love that the majority of the editorial is in black and white as it really suits the dramatic pieces by Rodarte, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Prada and Haider Ackermann – plus did you spot that incredible studded Chanel glove?

 

For the final spread, Nicole gets sexy with the help of her pal, designer and stylist L’Wren Scott, who styled her in a check shirt and bra, while she frolicked in a field in a gorgeous editorial shot by Bruce Webber.

I don’t think we see enough of Nicole Kidman in magazines and after seeing these gorgeous but very different editorials I don’t understand why. There has been a transformation of the past few years with Nicole – not just in her editorials but also her red carpet looks and I am loving seeing her be a little more daring with fashion – she is so stunning.

Which editorial do you like the best? I think Camilla Akrans gets my vote as I just love the lighting, the setting and how beautiful Nicole looks.

Johnnie Walker Blue Final: Christina Hendricks In L’Wren Scott

Who: Christina Hendricks

Where: At the Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ultimate Game Changer Experience during the Diageo Reserve World Class 2012 Global Final in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Wearing: A black figure hugging L’Wren Scott dress that falls just below-the-knee, paired with black peep-toe heels and vintage jewellery

Verdict: I wasn’t sure whether to include this look, I generally only like to feature celebrity looks that really jump out at me, and this look from Christina just looking like her Mad Men character Joan is a little bland.

Don’t get me wrong, Christina wears it well, her body and boobs look incredible in this dress but I would have loved to have seen her move away from the Mad Men costume wardrobe.

Do you like Christina’s homage to Joan?

Who: Actress Penelope Cruz supporting her husband Spanish actor Javier Bardem, who is a best actor nominee for his role in Biutiful

Where: At the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood

Wearing: A red silk L’Wren Scott with hand-embroidered sequins

Verdict: I just don’t believe that Penelope has just had a baby, she looks fantastic in this form-fitting sequinned beauty. I am so glad that she came tonight as I have certainly missed her this award season. I also love that she kept her hair down, I love it when it is sleek straight. Penelope certainly gets the award for hot momma with this amazing gown.

Who: Best supporting actress nominee, Amy Adams, for her role in The Fighter

Where: Arriving at the 83rd Academy Awards in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A navy floor-length beaded L’Wren Scott gown, teamed with an amazing diamond and emerald Cartier necklace worth a staggering $1.35 million

Verdict: Unique colour, and exquiste detailing, I love this gown. It will definitely be in my best dressed list.

But I am going to be a little controversial, I would have left the necklace in the store, I get that she will get lots of headlines due to how much it is worth, but seriously that this dress would have been enough.
